National Board of Fitness Examiners to Announce Plans for First National Exams

Las Vegas, NV - Last year, a Dan Rather CBS news report titled, “Who’s Training the Trainers" changed the way society views personal trainers. Today, over 200 companies offer personal training courses, allowing virtually anyone to call themselves a “Certified” Personal Trainer, making it difficult for the public, the media and the medical community to know who is qualified, and who is not. But this is changing.

In 2003, the National Board of Fitness Examiners ( was founded to set standards and create unbiased, valid, reliable examinations to test the competency of all personal trainers based on their scope of practice and education. All medical and allied health care professions currently utilize national board examinations, but this will be the first in the history of the fitness industry.

"The role of the NBFE is not only to ensure public safety and test the competency of all personal trainers, but to educate the public, medical community and insurance companies about the important role qualified fitness professionals play in improving health and preventing disease,” the NBFE reported.

On Saturday, March 20th in Las Vegas, NV, the NBFE will be hosting an historical press conference and industry forum unveiling the plans for the first ever, National Board Examinations.

The press and media are invited to attend the press conference/meeting which will be held at the Las Vegas Hilton at 4pm and will include hors d’oeuvres and a hosted bar.
